Franklin, MA (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
In support of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Brownfield redevelopment efforts, Kansas State University and CABEM Technologies have unveiled an education portal, “TAB” (Technical Assistance to Brownfields). The site, designed and developed by K-State and CABEM Technologies is powered by CABEM’s Livia Framework. The TAB portal provides assistance to communities and other stakeholders on Brownfields issues with the goal of increasing the community's understanding and involvement in Brownfield cleanup and revitalization.
“TAB” includes training, scheduling, and educational programs. Users can engage in webinars and discover locations of workshops around the country. People can search for opportunities to learn more about redevelopment of Brownfields and find seminars by category, region or state. Formal online training programs are available as well.
Users can learn how Brownfield revitalization can be a part of their community’s economic development strategy, as well as hear from local, state and national leaders on resources available to their community and how they can receive site-specific assistance.
The site includes the TAB EZ and Brownfield Inventory Tool (BIT) applications previously built by K-State and CABEM. TAB EZ is a free tool which streamlines and simplifies the grant writing process when applying for EPA Brownfields assessment and cleanup grants. TAB EZ is user friendly and offers helpful hints for addressing proposal requirements. BIT is a free, online, comprehensive site inventory and Brownfields program management tool.
The TAB portal uses CABEM’s Livia framework designed to securely power custom applications and also includes the Livia document manager, training tool and the content management system (CMS). CABEM’s CEO Jay Fredkin says of the new program, “We are very pleased that K-State is using the Livia framework to extend and manage education and information services to the Brownfield community.”
